FAQ and Support
The firewood got wet. How can we still burn the logs?
Allow the wood to dry before attempting to light your fire. Sunlight and ventilation will provide the quickest drying environment. Starting a fire with wet wood is a challenge. Extra kindling is recommended. Once a fire is established, small quantities of wet wood can be added intermittently.
What’s the best way to extinguish my fire?
Extinguish with water. The fire is completely out when the coals are cool and can be handled with bare hands.

What chemicals are in the Bonfire Light ‘n Go Log that makes it light and burn?
There are no chemicals in the Bonfire Light ‘n Go Log. The Bonfire is lit by a natural wick made of paper board and vegetable stearin. The wick catches the log on fire. It continues to burn as a result of the patented engineering design which allows air to travel to the flame through the channels under the log.

Why is the kindling called Alder Kindling?
Grey Alder is a species of softer hardwood. In Europe, this is the most popular wood used for kindling.
Why is your firewood more expensive than the local firewood I have purchased in the past?
Eco Forest firewood is very different from your local hardwood. All firewood items in the Eco Forest line are dried in a kiln to the USDA standard, which eliminates any pest or mold on the products, and allows them to light easily and burn thoroughly and consistently. Local hardwood is usually not kiln dried, and may carry pests within. Air drying, regardless of the time seasoned, will not perform like Eco Forest kiln dried firewood, in its ease of lighting or its thorough burn through.
Can I buy whole birch logs?
Yes, our European Whole White Birch Logs are available in bundles of 4 to 7 pieces, cut to 16 inches in length.
What is the difference between birch and hardwood?
Eco Forest Mixed Hardwood is a long burning, 16”, mix of select hardwoods, which offer the longest fire while still being easy to light and thorough burn through. For those who seek a natural beauty, white birch is not only excellent firewood, but is a popular décor item. Cut to 12” for multiple venues, split birch looks great stacked or in the fireplace. Birch also offers an exceptional halo, uniquely clean burn, and woody aroma.
